Guangzhou International Cruise Home Port (GIC) is located in the capital of Guangdong Province, a political, economic and cultural center in Southern China.
A converted cargo berth can now host a 150,000-ton ship, with a 4,000-square-meter terminal ready to process up to 1,600 guests per hour, according to port officials.
A large-scale infrastructure investment will add not only two more berths, but also a big passenger terminal, with a completion date of October 2019.
Guangzhou received 122 turnaround calls in 2017.
Major source markets include Guangdong Province, followed by Hunan, Hubei, Guangxi, Sichuan and Chongqing Province and autonomous regions.
